Forgot Pants.

It was bound to happen eventually. After the Nice Council Lady(TM) came and went, I decided to pull myself together and shower if for no other reason than my massage therapist was due at 5 and there's no way I would expect anyone to massage me if I wasn't recently washed. So I showered and dressed.

Walked down the driveway to the letterbox and back. Greeted the home visiting massage therapist.

Then I realised while undressing. No pants.

It's not *too* bad I guess - I'm wearing black thermal pants/leggings, it would be too cold to forget those. So I am actually covered. And covered to a degree that people would probably assume I knew what I was doing and chose to dress this way (tasteless though it is), rather than undressed to a degree that people would judge me as needing immediate help of some kind (thus causing people to avoid my eye and scurry away asap).

But nonetheless, thermals pants are underwear. I don't care whether they go all the way down to my feet or whether I wear undie-undies under them or not, they are underpants. They are not and never shall be overpants.

Still, at least my feet come out at the bottom of the legs of these under-pant things. Because if they didn't, they would be tights and strolling round with tights on and no skirt or pants really would be sad. And although they would have socks over the top like my current thermals do and therefore only look just as bad, it would be worse in its own very special way.

Of course as I have no plans for further visitors or outings tonight, there's no point worrying now. But prudence suggests I should remember to pull pants or a skirt out of the cupboard and onto the current pile before I go to bed. Needless to say the pants will be black stretch knit and of a similar fit to the under pants, but they will be what are sold as pants, not thermal underwear, and therefore shall keep me decent and out of a nursing home for a little while longer.

I don't think anyone would notice these days, anything seems to go!

FWIW, my sis-in-law never wears undies under her leggings! Well, she never used to, she might now!

*shudder* I used to know a lass who insisted that underwear was in some way bad for her and that she would never wear them, and instead wore nothing but leggings all the time under various other layers, or without other layers. I do not know how anyone can stand to do this, not least because it's so rare to find leggings without a crotch seam. And while I do allow as how a lady may sometimes feel obliged to ditch the panties if they show lines beneath her clothing, this is usually a sign that she's wearing the wrong sort of clothing or undergarments rather than a real sign that panties are evil, IMO. And this wasn't the case in that lass' habits, either, as she rarely went out without another layer or something longer on top. Can't bear the thought myself. If I am dressed, I am wearing underpants, scanty as they may be.

I frequently find myself wanting to wave my cane at young and not-so-young fools on the streets who are wearing leggings things in such a fashion that I can see parts I'd rather not. "LEGGINGS are NOT TROUSERS you stupid bint, you may go out in them ONLY if your bits are covered by a good long tunic or similar! I am extremely loth to use the repulsive phrase 'camel toe' but I have no politer word for the spectacle either! Now go home and get properly dressed and educated in fashion and decency!" Pant, pant, feebly wave cane in agitation at long-since-departed offender.

But I am in a wheelchair, which means I am at an unfortunate height when it comes to waistline and netherbits fashion fails, and perhaps I am become more sensitive.

Also, I can say with some honesty that missing underpants or the like did not get my grandmother tagged as senile, but wearing her clothing inside out repeatedly did. I now fret a bit whenever I do so accidentally. Grandmothers who wander about altogether naked or take off their clothes in public also get tagged as senile, which is why there is a whole sub-industry of clothing for the aged which is designed not to be easy to put on and take off like most of its ilk, but fastens in difficult ways to prevent elderly Alzheimer's patients from stripping.

But merely going to the postbox in legging-ish things that are not entirely transparent, that's barely a fashion misdemeanor, nobody but celebrities has to care about what they wear to the postbox IMO.

Anybody who saw you would have thought they were leggings. People wear weird stuff these days so I'm willing to bet nobody would have even blinked.

Tights sans pants are very common on college campuses here. Perhaps you were just being unconsciously trendy.
